Wat je gaat doen
You will first start with understanding the basic architecture of the historic necropolis, its designs and why the Qutb Shahi tombs are being restored (this is very important), after which participants will get an overview of the entire place, along with its basic history. Given that there are 7 Qutb Shahi (Golconda) kings, we'll visit each of their tombs and learn the history of the empire in a chronological empire. More importantly, participants will also be made to learn, through the usage of maps, the entire histoy of the Deccan (India) and its foundations of how it came to be. This history walk will also more importantly teach participants of the historical background of the Golconda fort and Hyderabad, and the city's connection to Persian culture. It will also throw light on the city s local cultures/stories/customs that exist today. Participants will also be provided with some reference material with accurate historical information (which you are most welcome to verify), so that they can refer to it while listening to the host during the walk. Each tomb has its own significance, and participants will be taken to each of the major tombs, and a few of the step-wells inside the premises as well.
I'm a journalist (reporter) who has been writing about Hyderabad's heritage and history regularly, and I also archive the city's lesser known history on my own for my blog The Hyderabad History Project, where I make sure I post only authentic and reliable information. Being a Hyderabadi, and thanks to my job, I know my city in and out. More importantly, I am quite-well read and well-versed with the history of our founding monarchs. I conduct history walks across the city every weekend as well to create awareness about our city's history and founders. The whole idea is to make people understand the kind of cultural confluence that existed between the city's Persian founders and the local Telugu people, which we need to learn if we are to understand Hyderabad.
